    Thank you so much for visiting this blog and for your kind words of encouragement. Even I learnt the meaning of many of the slokas only when I started posting them here :) God bless us all with peace and happiness.

    Hari Aum,

  11. Excellent.
    Only one spelling mistake i have seen.
    It should be "जगद्गुरुम्" and NOT "जगदुगरुम्". The English spelling is fine.

    1. Namaskaram,

      Thank you so much for pointing that out. But, even though I have typed it correctly, I see it getting mixed up and printed as 'jagadugaram' only. So, I have typed them as two different words for now - jagad gurum.

      Hari Aum!

  12. I find one mistake in Devanagari that needs to be corrected.
    It should read "श्रीवत्साङ्कं" in one of the above shlokas and not "श्रीवात्साङ्कं" as is written here.
    Otherwise everything looks good.
    Beautiful verses from Adi Shankara.
